    Works very well. Deprimed a few hundred 45ACP & 9mm cases whilst sitting watching TV. Now ready for tumbling. Very useful and convenient. Not strenuous.

    Excellent tool. Can sit in the sun and have a conversation while decapping. Many of my reloading customers are patiently waiting for this tool to be restocked. It is in demand by any reloader who sees it and tries it.

    I had a few thousand rifle and pistol brass, that I’ve accumulated over the last few years. It was all mixed together, and I divided them into rifle and pistol, but not by caliber. I did all the rifle brass first, then started on pistol brass, and I zipped through it like a hot knife through butter. It was so easy, and I didn’t have to set up my dies for each caliber. I only changed the collets from rifle to pistol and it worked like a charm. The only thing I did was to file the decapping pin a little so it would fit all the primer pockets. I’m going to buy another hand DePrimer for backup and order some extra parts, if I can! I deprimed every caliber from .32 to .45 auto and .22 Hornet to .300 Win. Mag. Talk about a great little time saver!

    Worked as expected – nice to be able to sit in front of the TV and deprime 45 ACP cases instead of being down in the basement where the press is. The only issue I have with the unit is that the smallest collet broke when I was trying to pry it off the frame. I am looking for a place to purchase a complete set as I expect to be using this tool for quite a while and would hate to have to give it up because some plastic parts broke or wore out.

    Great tool, speeds up depriming. I’m happy I purchased it! Nice feature is you only need one tool to deprime any case.

Product FAQs

Q- What size decapping pin does it come with?

A-It comes with the standard .08 decapping pin.


Q-If my decapping pin break is it replaceable?

A-Yes it is replaceable. You can also replace it with a .062 decapping pin.








  • Remove the set screw in the back of the case holder
  • Remove the old decapping pin
  • Remove all debris in the decapping pin hole in the case holder (blow out with compressed air). This ensures that the new decapping pin can be installed to the full depth.
  • Insert the new decapping pin until the pin bottoms out
  • Reinstall set screw


  • There are 2x spring plungers that lift the case holder up at an angle when the lever is released. These plungers may need to be adjusted over extended use.
  • The plungers have thread-locker installed, so first remove the plungers and reapply medium strength thread-locker
  • Tilt the case holder up, as shown above, and reinstall the plungers with enough tension to hold the case holder at an angle
  • Test the plunger tension by pushing the case holder down and squeezing the lever and releasing (case holder should be lifted by the plungers, as shown above). Readjust plungers as needed until the case holder lifts and holds at an angle as shown above(the angle should allow enough clearance to remove and install a case)
